Tips on masking in Adobe Photoshop CS5


My last post was on a similar subject but the video had no sound. I hadn’t mastered Adobe Captivate 5.5 trial version. I still haven’t but at least I can give you sound . I have now figured out how to stop the panning but I am afraid you will have to put up with it on this one.

This is all about how to create a mask and change the background on your image, hope you get something out of it.

Adobe Photoshop – Tips on masking


I cannot believe I haven’t made a post since Easter. I won’t make an excuse because excuses are like a***holes….everybody has one.

Hope you get something out of it.
